Bass of the Week: Gamma Bass Guitars “Starburst”
This week we’re checking out a cool custom bass from Gamma Bass Guitars called the “Starburst.” The one-of-a-kind bass features hand-painted artwork by Julie Rosenberg, who says she has “always been drawn to bold color and geometric style design.”
“Kandinsky’s musically inspired masterpieces captivated me at a young age,” she writes on her website. “The reason I painstakingly hand paint each guitar body, as opposed to spraying paint, is because of the hand-to-eye, muscle-memory, tactile features that come along with this process. The effect is time-liberating, not time-consuming, and multi-sensorial. The deliberate use of clear pickguards and control plate covers invite viewers to peek into the guitar’s harmonious inner workings – wired metallic elements and circuitry – that collaboratively along with the ensemble of parts and hardware work with the musician to produce the sound of this amazing instrument.”
The Starburst was built with an alder body, Canadian maple neck featuring a slim profile, and Indian Rosewood fingerboard. Other features include Gamma Gen 2 vintage-style J pickups and vintage-style hardware.
